OVERVIEW

U.S. and international clients trust Joe Matteo to navigate their complex commercial disputes from pre-litigation through trial and appeal. Joe’s goal is to help his clients identify and resolve their litigation issues as quickly and efficiently as possible so that they can focus on doing business.

Practical, level headed and a quick learner, Joe leverages his experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in advocating for his clients’ needs.

Joe regularly appears in federal and state trial and appellate courts throughout the country. He also has handled arbitration proceedings under the rules of almost every major arbitral institution. 

Joe has represented clients in a broad range of substantive areas, including securities litigation, breach of contract claims, business torts, partnership and employment disputes, and bankruptcy-related matters.

  • Served as trial counsel to a broker-dealer in two arbitration proceedings, both resulting in judgments in favor of the broker-dealer on all claims
  • Defended the former president and chief executive officer of a hospitality company against "short swing profit" claims under Section 16(b) of the Securities Act of 1934, resulting in the dismissal of all claims and an affirmance by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals
